Trafford Street Signs

Above and below are a few of the distinctive street signage dotted the Trafford area. They appear on the roads enclosed between Ayres Road and Talbot Road, with Hullard Park and Shrewsbury Street on the other sides.

I’ve long been fascinated by these signs so set out last year to document them. My plan was to photograph the mosaicked signs in full, then focus on the colourful designs that accompanied each one. They’re all beautiful creations and I’d love to know more about their history.

I’m sharing the best results here, but there’s a few I failed to photograph and others that were slightly out-of-focus. I expect I’ll get around to re-photographing them during the summertime.
